Duckhorn Vineyards Three Palms Vineyard Merlot 2002

02 vintage with John Upton who sold vineyard to Duckhorn recently. I always felt Three Palms was one of great alluvial fans in terroir as the Napa River tributes into this land. And the traditional vineyard management by John and Sloan was pure old world. No Abreu stuff here. But really the only age-worthy Merlot in CA. This bottle still tight but well made and can last 20 more years.
